Delivery of the new floodgates occurred on February 27. Full installation is underway with the gates becoming fully operational by the end of March. Work was completed on making a modification to the north spillway of East Reservoir which increases the efficiency and hydraulic control of the Portage Lakes system. The Long Lake floodgates replacement project is scheduled for completion in late summer, 2017.
